Trumpet Honeysuckle

Loniceral Sempervirens

Known as Trumpet Honeysuckle or Coral Honeysuckle. Native Americans used it for asthma, sore throats, coughs and chewed leaves were used on bee stings. The berries will induce vomiting if eaten. For me I would not use it because there are other alternatives that have been studied. I have not found studies on the safety or efficacy of this plant. But it does attract humming birds.
